Customer Question

Hello, I have a prominent weird vein on the top of my penis, since childhood. The only thing i can think of is mondor's disease but there is no pain or discomfort, does not effect my erection. It looks like this https://ibb.co/FsNstrh . I can physically move the vein and change it's shape but it always snaps back to the original position. The more blood goes to my penis the larger the vein gets. What is this?
JA: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this?

JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

thankyou for help, is it normal for the dorsal vein to curl at the top, like in the image attached? It is raised compared to rest of my shaft, almost like it is swollen, even when penis is flaccid.
